Why We Chose The Cotopaxi Teca: Simple, functional and sustainable.
Windbreakers aren’t usually the most exciting bits of kit around but when they look like the Teca Full-Zip Windbreakers from Cotopaxi, you can’t help but feel intrigued. Coming in a variety of eye-catching colour combinations, this unisex number by the Salt Lake City based Cotopaxi will bring some fun to your outdoor-clothing wardrobe.
Made with lightweight polyester taffeta (the whole windbreaker weighs just 128g) and finished with a water-resistant coating, the Teca Full-Zip is ideal for running, travelling, camping, or just popping to the shops in. And because it’s so lightweight, the Teca Full-Zip can be scrunched down and put into your pack in such a way that you won’t even know it’s there until you need it.
“This means that material which might normally have gone to the landfill gets a second chance to show people what it can do”
The Teca Full-Zip isn’t the most complicated product in the world, but then it doesn’t need to be. It’s a windbreaker. Leave the rocket science kit for the Everest climbers. The Teca’s elasticated hood, cuffs, and hem combine with a simple, yet effective, shielded back panel vent to serve up a functional piece of gear that looks the part and does the job.
Each Teca Windbreaker, it’s worth pointing out, is built from 100% remnant fabric. This means that material which might normally have gone to the landfill gets a second chance to show people what it can do. Good for sustainability. Good for the planet. Good for everyone.
